Simply log on as a different user with new ID & Password. To achieve this, firstly log in first as the Administrator, create a new user account & password. After that delete the user(yourself) account. Restart and log in with the user ID & password..................sodeep

If you don't know either the PIN or the secret question, the Parental Controls will need to be reset. To do that, you'll need to call Nintendo (1-800-255-3700).

My son forgot his dsi password. What do we do next?


Hi.

Go into system settings and navigate to parental controls, tap on yes to change parental controls. Where the DSI asks for the password tap on "I forgot", it should then take you to the secret question page. Enter the secret question and you should be able to reset the password. If your son has forgotten his secret question again tap on "i forgot". It will then give you an 8 digit code. Leave it on that screen for the time being. Don't tap OK.
Post that code here and I should be able to provide you with a 5 digit code so you can reset the password and clear the parental settings.



Regards.

Parental controls are lock


If you have Parental Controls turned on, but cannot remember your PIN, you will be prompted to select and answer a secret question that will allow you to change your PIN in the "Game Settings and PIN" menu

If you no longer remember your PIN, nor the answer to your secret question, then you will need to contact Nintendo Consumer Service for assistance.  To acces and change the parental control settings you SHOULD:
  1. Access the Wii System Settings
  2. Click on the blue arrow to reach the Wii System Settings 2 menu options.
  3. Choose "Parental Controls" and select "Yes."
  4. Enter the 4-digit PIN and select OK. If you have forgotten the PIN, select " I forgot" to answer the secret question. (Answers to the secret question are case sensitive.) You will now be in the Parental Controls menu, and can change the following items:

Forgot password for parental control for my wii


Hello paul_hawkesw

If you can´t remember your PIN, you will be prompted to select and answer a secret question that will allow you to retrieve a forgotten Parental Controls PIN. If you are unable to retrieve your PIN by answering your secret question, you´ll have to call Nintendo Consumer Service. You can get this number by going to the Nintendo website, selecting your country, then click on the "contact" link at the bottom of the web page.

Hope this helps. If you require any further assistance, please feel free to contact me.
